In a mixing bowl, combine the flour and salt. Add the water and egg, and knead the dough until it becomes smooth and elastic.

In a separate bowl, mix together the ground beef (or lamb), grated onion, salt, black pepper, and chili (or paprika).

On a floured surface, use a thin rolling pin called an 'oklava' to roll out one of the dough balls into a circle as thin as possible, approximately 18 inches in diameter.

You can roll the dough out using a pasta machine if you have one. It will make the process much quicker. Cut the dough into 1" squares using a sharp knife or a pizza cutter.

Pull up the four corners of the dough around the filling, pressing the four seams firmly between your fingers to seal them shut.

Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil over medium heat. Add the dumplings to the boiling water and cook for about 12 to 15 minutes, or until they float to the surface.

In a small saucepan, melt the butter and stir in the tomato paste, chili, sumac, and dried mint. In a separate bowl, mix together yogurt, garlic paste, and a pinch of salt.

When serving the Manti, pour some yogurt over the dumplings and drizzle a generous amount of tomato sauce on top just before serving.

Sprinkle with additional sumac and dried mint for extra flavor. Click on 👇 "learn more" for the full recipe with step-by-step instructions.
